Media & Entertainment Skills Council (MESC) has been setup under the National Skills Development Mission, Government of India under the aegis of National Skills Development Corporation (NSDC) and promoted by FICCI. The Media & Entertainment Industry is projected to grow to INR 1457 billion by 2016. Therefore it becomes imperative to have skilled workforce catering to the growing needs of the industry across various subsectors in terms of quality and quantity. MESC would ensure generation of adequately skilled workforce which is industry ready and employable.

"It was my long-awaited dream to bring together various stakeholders for the larger cause of contributing to the growth of M&E sector.  The formation of MESC is a step forward in this direction and this would help bridge the existing demand-supply gap. I am happy to be associated with the initiative as it would enable creation of a sustainable eco-system, accomplishing the long-term goal of producing quality skilled workforce at various occupational levels in the sector. Any endeavor to learn will discover a teacher or even create one."
